I am an illustrator/ oil-painter based in Norway.

I work mainly with  pen, pencil and oil.

My work make reference to early children’s illustrations and I often use a range of new and vintage photographs as points of reference, combining and reworking them to create a unique image of my own. I have a particular affinity for the natural world and it`s beauty.

Some of my work are close to photorealistic and in them my main interest is in creating a sense of mood and atmosphere .

My clients are many and formats range from commercial art used in ads or fashion-illustrations, to storyboards and huge wallpaintings.

I am represented worldwide by AGENT MOLLY & CO in Stockholm. www.agentmolly.com
